hello to all friends of cut, file and of course fill and sand plastic models  :D ...

today i start a new project it will be a 72 gto in guybrushs custom rat rod style with some new bodywork (i have no idea how the way goes i just build)

for the base i pick out the 72gto from mpc (its a horrible model bad quality and less details)

so i decide to make some unique out of it...

at first i cut the roof (make a el camino i love those cars) and the frontmask then i add some sheet

i change the hood with one of a 70 challenger and the grille comes from a 69 charger

Great looking start. A real wooden bed would look sweet in there.

Very organic - looks like it belongs together.  From the side, the front fenders and hood dominate; the rear fender line seems low in comparison.  Maybe its just the high rears of almost all current cars.  Very good start.
